898 VS 899

Post by JIM FLINN » Wed Feb 18, 2015 3:12 pm

Am interested in buying an 800 series HB for bow. I normally fish shallow water. What are the differences between an 898cHDSI and 899cHDSI?

Let’s see…
More Ethernet sharing of sonar with the newer 899ci HD Si model. The 899 has to use the AS-EC-QDE Ethernet Adapter Cable to connect to another unit or Ethernet accessory due to the Ethernet connector being moved to the rest of the connectors so that all are mated at the same time. This resulted in a change to the shape of the connector. On the 898 units, it is a separate screw-on type (M12 Ethernet) connector. The 899 has a built-in GPS Receiver versus the external GPS Receiver for the 898c HD Si model.
Uhhh… I think part-timers has set in because I can’t think of anything else right now…

One more difference.
The 898c HD SI Combo comes with the XHS 9 HDSI 180 T transdcuer and the Default setting is Hi-def Sidescan

The 899ci HD SI Combo comes with the XNT 9 SI 180 T transducer and the Default setting is Compact Sidescan.
The 899 can use the HDSI transducer at an additional cost.

Bottom line on the 899 is it is a wide screen version of the 798ci HD SI Combo out of the box, but can be upgraded to match the performance of the 898.
